What is Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil?

Are you confused about how to shop for cannabis products?


Hemp, cannabis sativa, and cannabidiol are just a few of the terms popping up all over product labels. Here's a quick & simple breakdown of these words to help you navigate these new product buzzwords:


Hemp and cannabis (aka medical marijuana) both derive from the plant species Cannabis sativa.


Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant that contains less than .3% THC.


Full-spectrum hemp oil is hemp oil that contains all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids present in the hemp plant.


Cannabinoids = chemical compounds found in cannabis and hemp plants.

There are at least 113 different cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant.

Each cannabinoid exhibits varied effects; a well-known example is THC.

Because of the extremely low (and oftentimes, undetectable) amount of THC in hemp oil, consuming it is a very different experience from what we've come to know as 'marijuana.'

Consuming full-spectrum hemp oil is a much more down-to-earth experience.

This isn't to say that we don't want you to have THC - 'cause we do!

We still strongly believe in the benefits of THC, but we think it's important to remember the other 100+ cannabinoids available from Cannabis sativa.


Due to the current legal limitation of THC access (#freetheleafalready), we felt compelled to offer products made with full-spectrum hemp oil.


Creating products with hemp oil enables us to provide a variety of cannabinoids in a way that is available nationwide (hooray for hemp!).

We encourage you to do your own research on what the various cannabinoids can do for you, and to remember that anything involving plant medicine is not a one-size-fits-all experience.
